LR5 Presets by Rebecca Lily

Recently, I decided to leave the DSLR game and start shooting the Fuji X series exclusively for my job. Being a predominantly film shooter, I’m usually not into the color palette that most digital sensors have to offer.

Well, the Fuji X-Pro 1 really changed that for me. I love the colors that I get straight out of camera with it, but it’s still a digital sensor. There’s always a small adjustment that can be made.

Like I said, I shoot film all of the time. Though it’s mostly black and white film, I still love shooting color film from time to time. Kodak Portra 160 and Fuji 400H are my two favorites. I always try to get that look digitally, but have never had good luck with it until now.

A woman by the name of Rebecca Lily has created a set of presets to use in Lightroom, Rebecca’s Pro Set II, specifically designed for the Fuji X users that want to give their images that little touch to emulate the film look. I try to do as little as possible when editing a digital photo and these presets work great for that. I’ve used the VSCO presets before and those are great, but this set is unique and has a LOT more to choose from. I’m particularly a fan of the Pastel choices that it has to offer.

If you would like to hear more about how to get this preset package, go to her site at www.rebeccalily.com and follow her on Twitter! @rebeccapatience.

Now, here are a few images that I’ve adjusted using the presets.
